El Fanio

El Fanio

2017

From our highest, oldest (eighty years old) and most attractive vineyard, we produce El Fanio, a complex, expressive 100% Xarel·lo aged in cement eggs and acacia barrels. A wine that breathes the landscape of garrigue, thyme, rosemary and pine resin that surrounds the vineyard. The deep roots struggling through the stony soils provide the maximum expression of this unique terroir.

__ Tasting note __

The surprisingly creamy elegance of this markedly floral Xarel·lo blends with notes of fresh fruit orange blossom and fennel. In the mouth it is full bodied with fresh acidity and hints of quince jelly with a final characteristic note of Xarel·lo.

A ripe, texturally complex, full-bodied dry white with candied-lemon and dried-sage aromas. Long finish, but with a little more freshness there, it would rate even higher.

Lots of intensity and great depth, this is one of the most floral Xarel·los I have ever tasted. It displays notes of chamomile, honeysuckle, fennel, lemon caramel and Mediterranean herbs. Extremely fresh and primary. The palate is concentrate, focused and well delineated. Very pure and stimulating

Medium intense yellow. Pronounced tosted notes on the nose with vegetal and white pepper aromas. On the palate, a fairly warm style displaying vegetal aromatics. A balanced wine with medium length that is instantly accessible.

Les Timbes

Les Timbes

An oddball, an experiment, a dare. Caladoc, Marselan and Arinarnoa are three largely unknown varieties, conceived in the search for the perfect grape. Together they produce this rounded, well balanced and profoundly spicey wine. These French varieties have found niches in the Ordal mountains where they express their very best potential.

__ Tasting note __

A garnet red wine with pleasant aromas of ripe fruit, spices, creamy oak, toasted notes and a hint of cocoa that is typical of Marsalan. In the mouth it is tasty, full-bodied with the ideal balance of acidity to be enjoyed it on its own, or with grilled meats.
